Beachside splendor at Cancun vacation rentals

A lively city on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun is known for its ancient Maya ruins, sprawling resorts, and plenty of broad, sandy beaches along the Caribbean Sea. A popular spring break destination, Cancun is often synonymous with sun-baked coeds having the time of their lives, but you'll find enough arts, culture, and history around your Cancun vacation rental to satisfy even the pickiest culture hound. The traditional, residential El Centro neighborhood boasts parks, libraries, and walking paths, while the resort-filled Zona Hotelera is home to most of the city's restaurants, bars, and upscale shopping.

Cancun has a tropical climate, with distinct wet and dry seasons. Average highs range in the 80s and 90s all year round. The city's a legendary location for college students on spring break, so if your idea of a good time is waterfront beer pong, daytime DJs, and beach volleyball, then you'll be in hog heaven. If you're hoping for a more tranquil Caribbean beach experience, you may want to wait until the crowds have thinned out a bit to book a Cancun vacation rental—winter, summer, and fall are less rambunctious, and easier on the wallet, too.
